Comparison of the biomass yield between model predictions with nominal energy demand and the experimental data. “-nom” refers to nominal, the default energy demand specified in the core model. Biomass yield is calculated as gram biomass produced per gram substrate consumed. uPPP% was set to 35% for all strains. Experimental data were obtained from the same sources [3, 16, 41] of the acetate data shown in Fig. 1. simu – simulation results, exp. – experimental data
